Abstract

There is no doubt that birds have a very great appeal to man and provide an important recreational pursuit. One main reason for this is that birds are much easier to see than other animals. Many birds are quite large, nearly all are diurnal, some are very numerous and, as a class, they are ubiquitous with many species conspicuously sharing man’s environment.
